[IC] KBM PBT Purseidon | Vendor update
« on: Sat, 09 April 2022, 05:00:58 »


Hey everyone! Switchlab here and I'm pleased to introduce my first keycap set Purseidon!

INSPIRATION
This set was initially materialised after finishing my deskmat design and I thought what better way to add a keycap set to compliment the deskmat design as well so here it is!
This will be my first keycap set so kindly bare with me on anything I might have missed out. I will be fine tuning the kits together with the manufacturer to ensure compatibility across the board 😛.

Do fill up the form below if you are interested and thank you!
IC FORM




SCHEDULE
Confirmation of Manufacturer & Vendors
Color sampling, collaborations
Finalizing of kits and prices
GB announcement



Who is KBM (KeyBee Mfg) and how can I be sure of quality?
KBM is a manufacturer that was recommended and introduced to me by Mechs & Co. KBM products can be compared to other well known PBT manufacturers with good or even better lead times.
Not convinced? Not to worry, color samples will be uploaded once they're ready!

Love Detective is another set that will be produced by KBM. Check it out!

04/10 - Made some adjustments to base kit, novelties kit, added 3.0 support to Spacebar kit, added Sea King Deskmat without the Wording
04/11 - New design for shift mod, slight adjustment to deskmat Sea King's Whale (Underbelly)
04/13 - Added Hiragana Alphas Kit for more options

Your kitting is missing F13, mod tilde, 40s support, 3u spacebars, Alice B, second 2.25u shift, and should strongly consider accented arrows and a 2u shift as well. In fact, you actually have accented arrows in your render but not in your base kit, which makes me wonder how much attention you're paying to this.

You've also rendered a R1 accented crown novelty in your render but it's only R2 in your kitting.

Most sets with icon R1-R3 keys opt for an icon HHKB control but if you're dead set on the way it is it's probably fine.

Thanks for the feedback! This is my first time designing and rendering a keycap set so thanks for pointing out all those points! It is definitely not final and will fine tune them before announcing the final kitting  :thumb:

i think base kit should include a yellow 6.25u spacebar..or simply replace the bluish spacebar with yellow..since all the renders are using the yellow space.. ;D

Your accents in the renders look more on the yellow side whereas the pantone looks more orange, not sure which is accurate.

Normalize Iso not being in base. Makes no sense to me and is the definition of keys that could be their own child kit seeing as the majority of users will never have a use for. Other than that ther rest of the kitting comments also apply. Would also be great to get an actual explanation of what KBM is and why we should give you money for it.

I've re-rendered the images now it should be better.

I sent some feedback in the IC form. Looking forward to this keycap set! Loving the colours and the deskmat.

Also maybe include a code snippet of the signature so it's easy to copy paste :D
